Keep’n It Real Lyrics – Shaggy

Uh – that’s right

Reality check

You know what I mean

Street lives eh

Scorpion yeah uh

When I was young

I use to dream of being rich

Have a lot of houses and cars

Couldn’t know which one was which

And finding me a chick and getting hitched

Living the fairy tale life perfect without a ditch

You think that this would bring me happiness

If at the end of every rainbow

There was a treasure chest

Sometimes having more is really less

So take a look inside yourself

You’ll realize you’re really blessed

No matter how inside you’re blue

There’s always someone who has it worse than you

Sometimes you gotta pay your dues

So don’t worry just push on through

[Chorus:]

Keeping it real

Gotta big up all my peoples who be working on the future

Though they know they gotta struggle

Keeping it real

To all my homies working on the 9 to 5

And doing right to keep themselves up out of trouble

Keeping it real

Although sometimes I know it seems impossible

There ain’t no need in drowning in your sorrows

Keeping it real

If things are as bad as they can be

You can be sure there’ll be a brighter tomorrow

And I forgot to have myself the house, the mansion, and the Benz

I’m not the type of brother who be making mad ends

I got myself a girl but we be kickin’ it as friends

Is not enough for me now that depends

Again- not everthing you want is everything you really need

The standard of society is motivated by greed

Are you prepared to follow

Tell me are you prepared to leave

So persevere and you’ll succeed

[Chorus]

[Hook]

All the harsh realities

Appears to come in two’s and Three’s

Don’t worry cause

There’ll be a better day

One thing I can promise you

Just keep on keeping on

I swear to you

There’s gonna be a brighter day

[Chorus]

Back in the days

I use to dream of being rich

Have a lot of houses and cars

Couldn’t know which one was which

And finding me a chick and getting hitched

Living the fairy tale life perfect witout a ditch

You think that this would bring me happiness

If at the end of every rainbow there was a treasure chest

Sometimes having more is really less

So take a look inside yourself

You’ll realize you’re really blessed

No matter how inside you’re blue

There’s always someone who has it worse than you

Sometimes you gotta pay your dues

So don’t worry just push on through

[Chorus]

That’s right, see me, yeah

Give thanks fa what you have, ya know

And when you think that its bad

There’s always somebody that’s worse

Know what I’m sayin’

Give Jah blessing, see me

Wa-wa, Wa-wa

Wa-wa, wa-wa
